What will you do today?

 People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
 
    Forgive them anyway.
 
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
 
    Be kind anyway.
 
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
 
    Succeed anyway.
 
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
 
    Be honest and frank anyway.
 
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
 
    Build anyway.
 
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
 
    Be happy anyway.
 
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
 
    Do good anyway.
 
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
 
    Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
 
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
 
    It never was between you and them anyway.

– Mother Teresa
